Imagine being able to watch your favorite television programs on your mobile devices? Sounds too good to be true, I know. But if Microsoft has their way, it very well could end up being a reality. New mobile devices are on the way that could mean a new way for us to take in media. On the surface, they appear to be a real threat to the iPod from Apple. However, it is unlikely in my opinion that they will make much of a dent in the original iPod crowd.
Widely seen as rivals to Apple’s iTunes and iPod the portable media players from Creative Labs, Samsung and iRiver will play music, video, TV and show still images.
The devices are designed to work with MSN Music and the latest version of Microsoft’s Media Player software. The first gadgets are available now but more will follow in the Autumn.
